The YMCA of South Hampton Roads welcomes another new location to it's family!

4 January 2018

The YMCA of Portsmouth, located at 4900 Hight Street West in the Churchland area of Portsmouth, is joining the YMCA of South Hampton Roads making it the 21st location for the network that already serves as far south as the Outer Banks of North Carolina and as far north as the Eastern Shore of Virginia. 

What does this mean for existing YMCA of South Hampton Roads members? Now they have access to another location, in addition to the YMCA at Town Center that just opened on January 1, 2018. For existing YMCA of Portsmouth members, the option is available to add on all 20 other locations that are now associated with their Y through a Community Wide membership option. 

For years, the service area for the YMCA of Portsmouth and two of the YMCA of South Hampton Roads locations, the Taylor Bend Family YMCA in the Western Branch area of Chesapeake and the Effingham Street Family YMCA in Portsmouth, have at times blurred the lines for members from all locations. This merger will allow members to have greater access to YMCA locations, their programs and their network of support, in return strengthening the Y's cause to strengthen community. 

Stay tuned as we finalize the merger in Spring of 2018.
